Login Script

I don't normally mess with my login script and stuff, but I was feeling like going on an adventure today (woohoo). Most of my unix experience is actually linux experience where I have root access... but here at school I don't. I want to get a quote generator of sorts running when I login. Any suggestions for what I should grab? I found one but it was an rpm and would install into directories I don't have access to... Perhaps there is a way to change where it installs? Any help is appreciated ;-)

Hi tuxtuxtux,

you could try
rpm --install --prefix ~/ quote.rpm

to install the RPM under your home dir...

Cheers,
Arjan
